This beautiful church was consecrated on 5th May 1863 and is a fine example of the work of Louth Architect, James Fowler (1828 - 1892). He was a prolific architect and restorer of Lincolnshire churches and became reputed for worshipping in the Anglo-Catholic tradition,and over 150 years later the church continues to hold dear this traditional, yet inclusive form of worship.

Wonder in this house of prayer and home of saints – a place of prayer and worship for over a millennium. The current building from 1170 was finished in 1515 – its crowning glory – the tallest medieval parish church spire in England. Photo by ELDC
St Adelwold’s is unusual as there are two churches situated within one churchyard. Both buildings stand in the former grounds of a 12th century Gilbertine priory. The only church in the country dedicated to St Adelwold. Photo by Dave Hitchborne
St Andrew’s is a small greenstone church of late Saxon and early Norman origin and consists of a chancel, nave, vestry, west porch and a bell cote containing one bell. The church has gained international fame when it was chosen by Hornby, the model train makers, to be the church for their model village of Skeldale.
Situated on the the highest point in the village, commanding views of Tathwell Lake. Enter through a timber-framed porch to discover an interesting mix of Norman, Georgian and Victorian architecture. There are only two churches dedicated to Vedast in Britain, and so here is a rarity! Photo by J Hannan Briggs
